Barnacle Bay Diner (Hogan's Deep Sea Diner) Issue
« on: 2010 December 09, 22:30:19 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

The Barnacle Bay Rabbit Hole, Hogan's Deep Sea Diner, is not placed in its lot when the world is loaded for the first time. I just got through talking to the community at the The Sims 3 website, who didn't help. Then I went on to get help from the Tech Support staff online, they at least answered my question about it.

Now what I'm trying to say is, it IS a known issue by EAxis, and they are investigating the cause. But there IS a workaround, it is not a perfect one, but it'll at least get the lot to where it should be. You have to put the cheat "moveobjects on" and place the diner Rabbit Hole (in Edit Town mode) where it should be. The diner will then be there.

I hope at least some people found this useful.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I did a search for this, and came up with literally nothing, so this topic apparently was not brought up. If this is in the wrong place, direct me to where I should post it instead.

Proofreading is going to be my best friend here.

In other words, there's no diner in Barnacle Bay, so you have to place one.  Why would you need an EAxoid to tell you that?

Pretty much, but I didn't contact the EAxoid about not placing it, but rather if it should actually be there. Because that got me to wondering whether it was just a clever marketing scheme to get you to buy it then find out you have to do work to to finish it.

But I guess that's just my inner Conspiracy Theorist.

The more plausible conclusion is that the game developers are a bunch of incompetent idiots.

You take all the fun out of it jeebuschrist. I wanted to say that.


So I will - so the work-around was to fix it yourself??

Yes. and I think I know where this is going from what I've seen by lurking, so I should shut my trap now, Shouldn't I? I don't want to dig myself into a hole only to be buried alive in said hole.

Ahh, no, it's all good. We're just working up to an EA rant.

The diner was placed just fine in my game when I installed the neighborhood, so this isn't an error everyone is experiencing.

Diner appears fine for me, too. They did update the diner, though, with the latest patch- so maybe if you install after the latest patch, it doesn't show up properly because it has been altered? They fixed the ambient noise to be appropriate.

Oh, okay, I thought I was going to be set on fire like other new users I've seen.

And now I'm beginning to wonder if replacing my bought version of BB with the one linked to in these forums might fix this (minor) problem. I never said it was a major problem.

Just reinstalled BB, diner didn't show up. I'm going to go with "latest patch altered it, so it doesn't show up in a new install".

I want to like you, in spite of yourself, but then you're just left with this whole "fan of Linkin Park" problem. And it's not like you can just ignore a thing like that.

So, purely for the sake of convenience, is it okay if we go back to setting you on fire just for asking silly questions?

LinkinParkfan? Really? Is it 2002 or something all over again? Does this mean I can start listening to Blink 182 again without pretending it's ironic? Excellent. I think we should all retreat to that happy place before Avril divorced Deryck and all our dreams of Punk Rock Princesses faded into nothing more than a Dirty Little Secret.

I've been thinking about changing my username, if it was possible. might go ahead and try. It's not like it has to go through court like a real name.

It's just as well.  You remember what Deryck LOOKED LIKE, right?  No one wants a bunch of Punk Rock Princess Gollums.

Better Undo that change and shut up before I dig myself a bigger hole, then.
